BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVE The number of diabetes in India is increasing at an alarming rate. The effects of physical activity in the form of resistance training or aerobic exercises on type 2 diabetes have not been studied in Indian population. The objective of this study was to analyse the effects of eight weeks of progressive resistance training (PRT)(More)
AIMS To analyze the effects of 8 weeks of aerobic walking using a heart rate monitor (HRM) and pedometer for monitoring exercise intensity on glycemic outcomes, fasting blood glucose (FBG), cardiovascular fitness and well-being in type 2 diabetes patients. METHODS Forty adults with type 2 diabetes were randomly allocated to an 8-week supervised program of(More)
BACKGROUND A bloodless operative field is considered mandatory for most surgical procedures on the upper and lower extremity. This is accomplished by using either an Esmarch bandage or a pneumatic tourniquet, but a number of complications are associated with both. Nerve palsy is one of the most frequently encountered complications of this procedure. Wider(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Incidence of Low Back Pain (LBP) in athletes is as high as 30%. Patients with LBP show altered postural and neuromuscular responses to various functional tasks. The objective of the study was to compare long latency reflex response (occurring between 40 to ∼ 100 ms duration) in athletes with chronic LBP with asymptomatic athletes.(More)

BACKGROUND The purpose of the present study was to examine the differential effect of core stability exercise training and conventional physiotherapy regime on altered postural control parameters in patients with chronic low back pain (CLBP). As heterogeneity in CLBP population moderates the effect of intervention on outcomes, in this study, interventions(More)
PURPOSE It is well known that the effects of exercise training gives inter individual differences which might be due to genetic diversity. This study aims to explore the probable relation between angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) alleles and physical fitness parameters in elite athletes. METHODS Twenty-nine national level Indian Army Triathletes who(More)
BACKGROUND Numerous exercises are used to strengthen muscles around the shoulder joint including the push-up and the push-up plus. An important consideration is the addition of surface instability in the form of swiss ball for rehabilitation and strength.
